  Q: How do I know which materials have been used in a shoe?

  A: updated (02/02/2012)

Retailers should provide a list of the materials used in the manufacturing process of the shoes they sell. However, it is noted that many retailers provide a minimum of details; stating that a shoe is simple leather or porvair etc. This information usually refers to the upper of the shoe (the material which surrounds the foot). Ideally a retailer should also provide the materials used which comprise the lining, sole of the shoe, and how high the heel is. The most common materials used to make a shoe's upper are leather, porvair, patent, satin, raffa, nubuck, pony, suede and fabric.
